It’s the last day of 2016, and I did it!
I gave you the sketch, the watercolour, or the abstract acrylic painting, and I did that 366 times.
Three hundred and sixty six creative acts, one for every day of 2016.
Here are my last two offerings.
It seemed fitting to end the year with one of my favourite subjects – nature.
The thing I love about nature is that she just keeps growing.
Setbacks don’t destroy her, she comes back more verdant than ever after fire or flood.
Her roots go deep into the earth, unseen but strong, and what the casual observer might mistake for decay or death, is merely a deep slumber, from which she bursts back into life at just the right moment.
Nature gives life.
Nature brings joy.
Nature is my muse.
That’s why I love the simple lines of leaves, and it’s why I love to #lookup.
So, here’s to my first ever year long creative project, #IGiveYouTheSketch 💚 #IGYTsketch #366of366 #IGYTsketchDec
Thank you for every like, and for all your encouraging words, they have buoyed me up and helped me believe, I am an artist.
And I’m not finished yet.
With thanks and joy and hope for you too to discover something new but old, something deep within yourself that wakes up your heart and brings you joy. We are not all that we will be, not yet – keep mining, keep believing.
Happy New Year.
